Graduates of Lackawanna College who wish to continue their education are regularly accepted for transfer into four-year colleges and universities as long as they meet the requirements of the chosen institution. To assist interested students, the Director of Advising and Transfer Services remains in constant contact with representatives from all area colleges, keeps up-to-date information concerning transferability, and coordinates on-campus visits by transfer representatives.
Lackawanna graduates earning either an Associate in Science degree or an Associate in Arts degree will be admitted to a Pennsylvania State System University upon transfer under the "Academic Passport". Additionally, articulation agreements are also in place with several private universities, including Albright College, Misericordia University, Keystone College, the University of Scranton, and Wilkes University.
There are many resources available for students interested in transfer. Here are some helpful links:
The National College Transfer Services Network provides students with transfer information and allows students to review course credit transfer equivalencies spanning 1,000 colleges and universities.
The Pennsylvania Transfer and Articulation Center (PA TRAC) was created as a one-stop shop for transfer students. Students accessing this site can review transfer course equivalencies, view college profiles for participating institutions, and access searchable databases by institution or course.
These resources can help you plan your transfer but should be used along with the information and support you receive from the Office of Advising & Transfer Services. There is no substitute for personal interaction, so students interested in transfer should always first speak to the Director of Advising/Transfer Services to review all options.
The Office of Advising and Transfer Services can assist students in gathering information on four-year colleges, selecting a four-year college and major, and resolving problems that arise in the academic transfer process. Students considering transfer from Lackawanna College should meet with the Director of Advising & Transfer Services to review their curriculum and discuss available options.
